SPORTS KENYA WINS RURING’U STADIUM OWNERSHIP TUSSLE

Sports Kenya will finally take full control of Ruring’u stadium in Nyeri following an out of court settlement following a long-standing ownership dispute with the Agricultural Society of Kenya.Negotiations with ASK and the County Government of Nyeri had been successful and the ownership dispute had been solved. The dispute on ownership of the stadium started in 2017 after the Ministry of Sports began the process of renovating the facility.

Refurbishment of the stadium was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta in February of that year and was scheduled to be complete by July 2018. However, the Trustees of the Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) quickly moved to court accusing Sports Kenya and Nyeri County of trespass and encroachment on the land the stadium stands. The stadium initially hosted an annual agricultural exhibition by ASK before the society relocated the fair to Kabiru-ini grounds.
